Liturgy Reflection & Benediction 10.16.2016

Liturgy Holy God, give us the strength to be honest— to you, to ourselves, and to others. Give us the courage to lay down our insecurities— to trust that we are loved, that we need not want.

Liturgy The Spirit of God calls us from many places; from the places we call home and those we occupy for the time being. Yet we all come to this same place; all of us seeking God’s presence in our lives, all of us seeking God’s presence with each other, all of us seeking to work and rest in the […]
